Local consultation

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) consults continually with local officials in areas of the state that are not served by metropolitan planning organizations (MPOs). The central office in Madison and each of the five transportation regions have worked hard to develop and maintain strong relationships with local and tribal governments throughout Wisconsin.

In response to the FHWA final rule defining local consultation in areas not served by MPOs, WisDOT submitted the final report below to describe and document the agency’s local consultation process. It also presents highlights from the central office and the transportation regions of some of their successful practices, and reviews the steps in the local consultation process for a few select WisDOT plans and programs. Lastly, it provides a description of the review process for this local consultation documentation and outlines the steps WisDOT will take to ensure that the process is reevaluated in the future.
